Wenger fires back at Mourinho over playing Lacazette against Manchester United

Share

Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has refused to surrender in the English Premier League title race despite the Gunners 3-1 home loss to Manchester United over the weekend. Mourinho accused Wenger of gamesmanship and intentionally misleading his opponent.

Wenger had ruled the France forward out of Saturday's visit of Mourinho's Manchester United only to name him in the starting line-up.

"Matic is injured but will play for sure, I'm telling the truth but he will play for sure", Mourinho declared towards the end of a lengthy injury update. "What did you want me to do, leave him at home?"

Wenger's side had 33 shots on goal but came undone with Antonio Valencia's goal and Jesse Lingard's double either side of Alexandre Lacazette's strike.

"Yes I thought he wouldn't play, yes", Wenger added.

The boss feels that his anger and that of the Arsenal players at getting nothing for such an impressive and dominant display could be used to spur us on to success in the coming weeks and months.
